Muncie PTO FR66Leaking Oil From Some Stahl PTO Oil Pressure Switches on Muncie Super Duty PTOs May Pose Fire Risk 

A recall that directly affects work trucks came from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) today saying  Stahl is recalling certain model year 2009-2014 Ford F-350 Super Duty, F-450 Super Duty, and F-550 Super Duty vehicles modified by Stahl and equipped with certain Muncie Power Products PTO Assemblies.

In the affected vehicles, including those modified by Manning Equipment (NHTSA #14V326000), oil may leak from the PTO pressure switch onto a thermal blanket covering the exhaust.

According to the NHTSA recall notice, the leaking oil may soak into the thermal blanket covering the exhaust, which when combined with heat from exhaust, may result in an increased risk of fire.

NHTSA says Stahl will notify owners, and dealers will install a new pressure switch kit that moves the switch away from the exhaust system, free of charge.

Owners may contact Stahl customer service at 1-800-277-8245, Muncie at 1-800-367-7867, or the NHTSA Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
